Women like to be romanced. It’s a concept that must have started at the beginning of time. Whether she’s the woman you plan to ask to spend the rest of your life with, or the woman you have already spent 20 or 30 years with, she will melt at being made to feel special.

She wants to be your princess. She wants to be your special and personal angel. Hopefully some of these suggestions might help you to give her that feeling of being cherished.

There are always the old stand-bys of flowers and candy. They work as well now as they did in the days of Cleopatra. If the budget doesn’t allow roses, she’ll enjoy carnations with baby's breath just as much. The same goes for chocolates. If it isn’t possible to gift her with the most expensive, settle for a smaller box or another kind.

Stuffed animals will win the heart of some women. A fuzzy little teddy bear can be turned into a personal message of love if you write a note just for her and the little guy can hold it in his paw for presentation.

Then there is always poetry. Many men will refuse to try it, but a few words in the form of a poem will go a long way in making his partner feel special. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or frilly. Just write what you feel. It doesn’t even need to rhyme if that is troublesome for you.

Another thing close to a woman’s heart is time. Give her some of your time. Perhaps a “what would you like to do tonight, honey?” instead of “wanna go for a burger when the game’s over?” Private time is also very important. Give her time to soak in a luxurious bubble bath. If there are children, promise her that she won’t be interrupted.

To take that a step further, buy her some bath oil and run the bath for her. Don’t forget to light a candle or two and have her robe ready in there for her, too. It is something she’ll be smiling about for a long time.

Can you think of something to do for her or give her that is reminiscent of your first date or the time you met? Reminders of that special time can be true treasures. Can you take her back to the first restaurant at which you dined together? Or the place you proposed, if that is the case? Can it be recreated for an anniversary?

Another memorable gift of a lifetime can be offered if finances allow. Plan a weekend getaway for her. Make sure that all details are taken care of. This would not only include itinerary for the trip, but the “smaller” things like hiring a sitter if there are children. Then present the gift in a special way. A note on her pillow promising a mystery weekend she will never forget is one idea.

Whether your gift to your princess must be very inexpensive or you can splurge a little more, showing her you care with a little romance will be something she is not soon to forget.
